        Concierto del Sur manuscript

      1941 - PONCE, Manuel. Concierto del Sur full score manuscript. [Uruguay, circa 1941]. Folio, unbound; pp. 20. $3800.Autograph manuscript by Segovia of the opening section of Ponce's Concierto del Sur, commissioned by Segovia.Largely self-taught, Segovia was faced early in his musical career with a general disbelief in the seriousness of classical guitar, a problem he felt was caused by a lack in quality of the available repertory. One response was to seek out pieces either originally written for the lute or capable of being arranged for guitar (he himself arranged works by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, and Chopin, among others); the other path was to commission new works. Catelnuivo-Tedesco, Talla, Haug, Rodrigo, Torroba, Turina and Villa-Lobos all wrote works for Segovia, but it was with Manuel Ponce, the most important Mexican composer of the 20th century, that he developed the most enduring relationship. Ponce's best-known work and one of Segovia's signature pieces, Concierto del Sur was commissioned by Segovia in 1941 while he was living in Montevideo, Uruguay. Ponce would send sections of the work to Segovia, who would play them and then send back suggested changes to Ponce. This copy of the full score differs substantially from the extant manuscript in Ponce's hand, suggesting the degree to which Segovia had a hand in shaping the piece. First performed in Montevideo in 1941 on Ponce's Latin American tour-with Ponce conducting and Segovia playing guitar""Concierto del Sur was not finally published until 1970. This manuscript for the full orchestra for the first section (marked "Allegro" by Segovia at the top of the first page), written in black ink on 11 staves per page, is for most of the first movement, without the ending. Segovia's writing is clean and elegant, exceptionally readable. An important piece in fine condition.

        GERMANY MUST PERISH!

      Newark, N. J. ; Argyle Press 1941 - Original Wrappers. 8vo. 96 pages. 19 cm. Second edition. Map drawn by Kaufman, on inside back cover titled, "Map Showing Possible Dissection of Germany and Apportionment of Its Territory. " Second edition of "Germany Must Perish! " in illustrated wrappers with media pull quotes on the back cover from Time Magazine, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Philadelphia Record. After accusations by the Nazis that the book was partly responsible for the eviction of Jews in Hanover, Germany the book was reprinted and widely reviewed in the United States. Kaufman steadfastly defended his thesis against the doubt and fear regarding its impact. An interview with Kaufman from the September 26, 1941 Canadian Jewish Chronicle reads, "’My book, ’ he said, ‘is a voice of doom to the Germans. Can you imagine what they think when they read in their own language – and Germany Must Perish is translated into German, you know – that all Germans will be sterilized? Ha, they are afraid! That’s why they write about the book. It hit home. ’ [ ] ‘Jews must come out into the open and fight this evil. Do you know that I risked my life by signing my name to this book? But we cannot afford to compromise. Germany and Germanism need not have anti-Semistims for a scapegoat. The next Fuehrer won’t have anti-Semitism, as there won’t be enough Jews in Germany. But those Germans will find some sort of whipping boy, unless we lick Germany and eradicate her from the face of the earth. ’" Initially self-published and obscure, the anti-German book became a central strategic piece for infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels referenced the book throughout World War II claiming it as proof of a Jewish threat to the Nazis, writing in "his diary August 3, [1941], ‘He really could not have done it better and more advantageously for us if he had written the book to order. I will have this book distributed in millions of copies in Germany, above all on the front, and will write a preface and afterword myself. It will be most instructive for every German man and for every German woman to see what would happen to the German people if, as in November 1918, a sign of weakness were given. ’" (Herf, page 112, "The Jewish Enemy") However this mass publication plan never came to fruition, because Goebbels "feared copyright problems. The U. S. Was still not in the war, and he worried that the U. S. Might retaliate by stripping German works in the U. S. Of copyright protection. " (Bytwerk, 2012) Instead, edited and editorialized selections of the book were published in the widely circulated Nazi pamphlet DAS KRIEGSZIEL DER WELTPLUTOKRATIE alongside claims "that Kaufman was a close associate of Franklin D. Roosevelt, a member of his Brain Trust, and that Roosevelt himself had dictated some of Kaufman’s words. " (Bytwerk, 2012) Subjects: World War, 1939-1945. Kaufman, Theodore N.

      [New York 1941 - Souvenir program from an event celebrating Kent's election as Vice President of the International Workers Order (I.W.O.), held at Lodge 500 Headquarters in New York on January 19, 1941. The I.W.O. was a Communist Party-affiliated insurance, mutual benefit, and fraternal organization active between 1930-1954; at its peak, during the years immediately following World War II, the organization had nearly 200,000 members. The event doubled as a forum for celebrating the publication of Kent's recently-published autobiography This Is My Own. Contents feature Kent's two-page introductory lecture, with the rear wrapper providing the order of events for the evening; fellow artist William Gropper acted as Master of Ceremonies, with performances by soprano Mildred Green and distinguished Chinese pianist Yao Tschin-Schin. A rare piece of Kentiana; we find no example for sale in the trade (July 2016), and 1 copy in OCLC (Frostburg State), this example similarly signed by the three principal figures associated with the event. Bifolium (22.5cm); single sheet of beige laid paper (9" x 12"), folded once to create a 4-page program. Signed by Rockwell Kent, Yao Tschin-Schin, and William Gropper at lower front wrapper. Edges toned, with short tears, attendant creases, and shallow chips (none affecting text); Very Good.

Among the over 30 films beautifully presented on card stock in this spiral-bound work are Orson Welles' Citizen Kane, Disney's Dumbo, Fantasia and Bambi (in vibrant color), Hitchcock's Suspicion (with its working title of Before the Fact), Little Foxes with Bette Davis, the noir classic Journey into Fear, which Orson Welles would co-direct (uncredited), and much more.

RKO never completed the film, however, and Dreiser's classic reached the screen as Carrie in the 1952 Paramount film starring Olivier and Jennifer Jones. Another delayed production seen herein is Gwangi, which was left on the shelf by RKO but became a cult classic with its 1969 release as Valley of the Gwangi, with animation by Harryhausen. Throughout this handsome folio are nods to stars such as Welles, Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers and Gary Cooper, and the volume concludes with views of Disney cartoons"""The whole Country's Going Goofy!""" and March of Time newsreels. With introduction by RKO president Geroge J. Schaefer. Plates fresh and bright with only tiny big of rubbing to initial leaf, spiral binding complete and intact, slight edge-wear to boards.

        The Excavation of Medinet Habu, Volume III, The Mortuary Temple of Ramses III, Part I

      Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.: Univ of Chicago Press, 1941. This is NOT an ex library book. This is Part I only. Published June 1941. Translated from the German by Mrs. Keith C. Seele. Brown buckram heavy-duty binding, with crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the spine. Generally unbumped if lightly rubbed spine head and tail, with lightly bumped and rubbed corners. 16 x 12 inches. Text block firmly bound in. T.E.G. With xiii and 87 numbered pages of text, interspersed with numerous B&W figures and also with 40 full-page plates, the first two of which are in color. Many of the plates are of archival photos. To the top corner of the front pastedown, in a very neat and small ink hand, previous owner name and date. Else a clean volume, and rather tight. Respectfully read. No dust jacket [as issued?]. A Very Good Plus copy. With thanks to The Oriental Institute, University of Chicago: "Ramesses III’s great temple complex at Medinet Habu is distinguished from other royal mortuary temples in Egypt above all by the circumstance that much of the temple structure itself still stands and that excavation has made comparatively clear the entire temenos with all subsidiary structures, fortifications, and the like. Thus in Medinet Habu as nowhere else in Egypt are revealed the entire plan of such a large and rich temple complex and to some extent the cult and administration carried on within its walls. This extensive architectural creation of Ramesses III is the subject of Volumes III and IV of The Excavation of Medinet Habu. Each individual structure can really be understood only in its relation to the entire layout. On the other hand, it is impossible to gain an idea of the whole without first understanding the significance of each part. We therefore begin our treatise with a discussion of individual structures and groups of buildings and close with a comprehensive picture of the entire complex. The present volume is concerned only with the structures of the inner temple area, and a description of the Ramesseum is included for purposes of comparison.". First Edition. Buckram. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall.

        ???????? Picture-Story Show: Ikky?-san

      Tokyo: Shink?-sha ???. Showa 16. [1941]. Scarce Japanese kamishibai (paper theatre) stage, glass screen and complete set of 14 cards. Kamishibai frame illustrated by Koide Shin’ichi ????. Text and illustrations of the Ikky?-san story by Kiyohara Takashi ?????. Paper and card theatre shows some insect damage and wear with a few occasional marks. First card a little creased, cards foxed and soiled in places. Kamishibai or Japanese paper theatre had its heyday in the first half of the 20th century before television sounded the beginning of its demise. Kamishibai men, or very occasionally women, were most commonly itinerate street story tellers who sold sweets to their eager audiences of children as a way of ekeing out a living. They had wooden stages which they usually transported around by bicycle. When they arrived at the place where they would give their performance they attracted the attention of local children by clapping two wooden sticks together. With an audience assembled they began by selling sweet and then told their story using the illustrated boards, slipping one in front of another in the grooves of the stage as the story progressed. Kamishibai was influenced by the culture in which it thrived, with cinema being a particularly strong influence. It covered all styles almost always with a strong moral tone. During the Second World War kamishibai was extensively used to send out a nationalist message. Stories were exciting! The kamishibai men often leaving the story mid-point on a cliff hanger, so the children would return the next day. Kamishibai may not be performed on street corners in Tokyo anymore but its influence lives on in the many manga artists who emerged from the kamishibai industry. The theme of this toy kamishibai is Ikky?-S?jun ???? [1394-1481] a Buddhist priest of Daitoku-ji Temple who is well known to Japanese audiences as an intelligent, witty, problem solver. Since childhood Ikky?-S?jun was regarded as a very talented and witty person and there are many anecdotes and stories which tell of his wit. There are three stories in this kamishibai set, Ikky?-san and his friend Chikusai feature in two of them and their master in a third. (Manga Kamishibai. The Art of the Japanese Paper Theater - Eric P. Nash. 2009). .

        Portraitskizze eines Kindes, in Original Pastell-Kreide hinter Passepartout und Glas gerahmt,

      August 1941. - schönes signiertes Blatt. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger (* 30. Juni 1892 in Buchen im Odenwald; † 12. April 1966 in Karlsruhe) war ein deutscher Maler. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger zählt zu den Vertretern der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Er ist der Sohn eines Gymnasialprofessors und machte 1911 sein Abitur. Von 1911 bis 1915 besuchte er die Königliche Kunstgewerbeschule München und studierte parallel in München Architektur. Ab 1913 war er Schüler des Gebrauchsgrafikers Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke und ein Freund von Karl Rössing. 1918 wurde er zum Dienst im Ersten Weltkrieg eingezogen. Er war 1919 für die Zeitschrift Der Weg und ab 1920 für die Zeitschriften Wieland und Simplicissimus tätig. Schnarrenberger unterrichtete von 1921 bis 1933 an der Badischen Landeskunstschule. 1924 war er Gründungsmitglied der ORNA-Werkstätten für Werbung und Innendekoration. Unter den Nationalsozialisten war seine Kunst verpönt und wurde 1937 als entartet gebrandmarkt und verboten, nachdem er bereits seit 1933 nicht mehr unterrichten durfte. 1933 übersiedelte er mit seiner Familie nach Berlin, wo er versuchte, als freischaffender Gebrauchsgrafiker seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen. Den bevorstehenden Krieg voraussehend zog er 1938 nach Lenzkirch im Schwarzwald, wo er zusammen mit seiner Frau Melitta (1909-1996) eine kleine Ferienpension eröffnete. Hier entdeckte er das für sein späteres Werk so wichtige Thema des Stilllebens. 1947 wurde er zum Professor an die Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe berufen. 1962 erhielt er für sein künstlerisches Werk den Hans-Thoma-Staatspreis. Schnarrenberger legte stets auf das handwerkliche Können seiner Schüler großen Wert, so mussten diese zuerst das Zeichnen von architektonischen Gebäuden und Alltagsgegenständen erlernen, bevor er sie malen ließ. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger war der ältere Bruder des Generalmajors der Wehrmacht Ernst Emil Schnarrenberger (* 27. Juli 1893 in Buchen im Odenwald; † 10. Juni 1966 in Bad Mergentheim).[1][2].
